Laws Regarding Property Fences in Massachusetts

Did you know there are Massachusetts state laws related to the maintenance of fences around properties and people appointed to inspect and enforce these laws? Some of these laws date back to when most fences in the area kept livestock and in or out of areas and to define exactly where one person’s property ended and another began. Local municipalities appoint people called “fence viewers” to review and enforce these laws.

Here in Massachusetts, you will see fences constructed from many materials and of a variety of ages. Next time you are out for a drive, see who can spot the oldest or most unusual fencing along your route. These property boundaries can be as unique and beautiful as the property they enclose.

For more information on fencing regulations and the fence viewers who are appointed to inspect, enforce and resolve fencing conflicts visit the State of Massachusetts Commonwealth Laws chapter 49.

Why Your Fence Needs Fresh Paint

Wooden, brick or concrete fence materials are frequent choices for privacy and security around properties in Massachusetts. Homeowners with painted surfaces need to keep them attractive and protected from damage by repainting them occasionally. Painting your fence has many benefits, including prolonging its life.

Below are reasons you should consider painting your Newton area fence.


Wooden fences are vulnerable to damage from rain, sun, wind and snow. Allowing the wood direct exposure to these elements reduces its useable life. Professional painters, like ProTEK, apply high-quality paint that provides protection from rain, sun, and wind for a long time. By coving the fence with a protective layer of paint, no water can seep through causing rot.

Enhances Home Value and Curb Appeal

Fresh fence painting transforms your yard by providing a clean backdrop to the rest of your landscaping. A freshly painted wooden fence is visually beautiful and adds curb appeal to your home.

Thinking of selling? A fresh coat of paint on your fence raises the value of the property because purchasers notice items like this. A well-maintained fence usually means a well-maintained home. For more tips on ways to make your home look great, check out our curb appeal checklist.

Popular Fence Paint Colors

Updating your fence is an excellent method to make your backyard more attractive. When choosing a fence paint color, often homeowners want their fence to blend in with the surroundings. Other times, homeowners want to make a bold statement.

Using popular fence paint colors is a great way to improve the look and value of your home. Here are trends in fence painting to give you ideas.

Traditional White

Traditional white is an excellent choice for many home styles. Often, people dream of living in a home with that white picket fence. When you use white, it creates a classic look. Don’t forget… there are so many shades of white available you will find your perfect match.

Bold and Dark

A dark-painted fence is good for both modern-day and traditional homes as it functions as a neutral. Houses with bold black fences offer a setting for flowers and plants to stand out. The textures and colors will pop against a dark background.


Gray is a perfect neutral that blends well with homes of assorted styles. Gray-scale settings create a sense of depth, making spaces appear larger. A gray color on your fence is a great backdrop for any landscape and coordinates well with most home exterior paint colors.
